Georgia Institute of Technology
When it opened in 1885, the school's main focus was on practical experience (learning things by doing them); students spent half of their time in class, and half in the shop.
It first admitted women in 1952.
In 1961, it was the first university in the South to integrate (let people of different races go to school together) without a court order.
